The recipe is basically good. I made just one change - instead of water I used juice to bring the dough together. Added just a touch of sweetness and flavor. And I also cooked them until they were like hockey pucks. At 350 til golden brown, then down at 200 until hard enough I couldn't bite them apart easily. So far my 8 month old hasn't been able to crumble one, instead it sorta mushes off as he sucks/gums it.

I used cold breast milk instead of ice water. This worked well. I added just enough to hold the dough together - it's easier to add the liquid a bit at a time, just until you get cohesion - that way you won't get the sticky problem. Super easy. Thanks!

Thanks for the recipe. Mine were kind of rubbery so they didnt crumble. I guess I must have made mine too big, It made 17 cookies. The dough was sticky for me too. i rolled it into balls with floured hands and flattened them with the bottom of the measuring cup. My daughter liked them too. Thanks again for a great recipe.
